The Way The Story Goes
Magnolia Sound #7
I love the Magnolia Sound stories, set in a small coastal town, its characters are so different, along with some great stories and some big secrets. It goes from quiet little town to crazy town in the warmer months, but to those who call it home, Magnolia Sound is steeped in history and charm! For those who leave for a long time, or a short time, or those who come to visit and never leave it’s a beautiful place to capture your world, even if for a little time!
We met Mia Kingsley in Last Beautiful Girl, a famous author trying desperately to finish off her smash hit series, Twisted Deception, but loving in Boston and everything going on around her meant it wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. All for her followers, Mia relocates temporary to Magnolia Sound to finish it beach side in total peace, until power tools, load pumping music and seriously bad singing pushes her last nerve! Steaming over to the house, and the person responsible Mia is on a collision course with fate, something she knows a little about! Ready to tear the head off the neighbour for all the noise, she is stopped in her tracks when a sink, (yes a sink) almost hits her in the head, if that’s not bad enough trying to miss that she stands on glass which cuts open her foot. But the man whom she’s gonna kill, is a sight to behold!
Austin Coleman isn’t new to Magnolia, he grew up here and is part of the huge Coleman family who founded the area. But unlike the other Coleman’s, Austin came from a poor mother, a father who walked out on them, was the town screw up, bad temper, bad attitude, yeah you know the type? After leaving Magnolia to pursue a career and college, Austin is now a very talented architect, but a little mishap has him moving back to Magnolia to help renovate a beach house for a friend. This is the perfect way for him to get his head back in the game, no one around, he can concentrate on what he loves….. until a neighbour is seen, and once seen she can never be forgotten. In a laugh out loud encounter, Austin almost maims his new and sexy neighbour! In an all out war Austin attempts to come to a ceasefire and once it’s sealed and delivered, the chemistry between the is off the charts.
Almost instantly Mia’s writers block opens, and a new story of a deadly contractor, his loud music and power tools, all sexy with his shirt off her creative juices flow, meaning she thinks more and more of the hunk next door. Not ideal for finishing off the series she’s there for, she finds solace with Austin, he’s smart, sexy and very good with his hands. He’s a man who works hard, and his good vibes eventually help her unlock that block and finish her series! But as one story finishes, another opens and somethings you just have to go with it…. As the story goes, sometimes you just have to see where it takes you!
